My Journey from IBD to Abdo Empowered
Diagnosed at 36 with IBD (ulcerative colitis), I managed pretty well on medication and a careful diet until 2020.
Then the roller coaster from hell began! On steroids and biologics, I was house-bound as my disease continued to flare and escalate. Finally the decision was made to have my bowel removed - a total colectomy. Yes, it was a daunting decision to make, but really the only one left. Wearing support belts became my new normal and, finding hernia belts that were actually comfortable and wearable, my new crusade!
Nothing I found in NZ fitted the bill however, during a holiday on the Sunshine Coast, I found myself in trouble with a parastomal hernia and a painful blockage. I searched online and found the exact support belt I had been trying for months to get back home! It was from Belly Bands Australia and they were just down the road!
Long story short, I loved their products so much that we decided to stock them back home in New Zealand, and thus Abdo Empowered was born!
